Winning photo: home swap travel photo competition

Christine's family home swap holiday in the Lake District
Christine's winning photo from her family's home swap in the Lake District

A BIG thank you to everyone that sent in their photos to our home swap photography competition. We received over 200 photos making it extremely hard to select a winner.

The photos received included everything from fun holiday selfies, lovely photos of off-the-tourist trail discoveries, as well as several photos from professional travel photographers. However, we loved Graham & Christine's winning photo (above) which was taken during her family's home swap in the English Lake District. As the winner, Graham & Christine will receive an Amazon Kindle plus a one-year Home Base Holidays membership.

"This photo was taken during one of our favourite home swap holidays. Here we are climbing a mountain in the beautiful Lake District... it was our second attempt as the first day we drank all our water mid morning and a dog ate our lunch!" 

- Christine (London, England)

Competition runner up photos:

Shown below are the three runner up photos, each runner up receiving a one-year Home Base Holidays home swap membership (worth £49 each). As mentioned, we received so many excellent photos - we will share some more of these home swap experiences in a separate blog post. 


"Hi HBH team! We had an amazing house swap holiday with Nick and Jane on Vancouver Island last summer and also enjoyed a great swap this summer with Ben and Elisa in Capbreton, France. This photo was from our swap on Vancouver Island."


"This is from our excellent home swap in Warwickshire earlier in the year. We visited the National Trust property Coughton Court, where Paul was very pleased to be able to use the National Trust’s buggy to help explore the estate."


"We had a fantastic home swap experience with a family in San Sebastian, Spain. They, in turn, stayed at our apartment in Lisbon, Portugal and a wonderful time was had by both parties. Thank you to the home swap team for making sure people make good memories in a caring and supportive environment!"
